Last night, my roommate Ashlee invited Brent and I to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Orchestra Concert. We thought it was going to be in the Conference Center, but turns out it was in the Tabernacle. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful building with amazing sound... but the seats are so uncomfortable that it makes any performance you go to a long one. Besides being very uncomfortable during the concert and then walking to our car in freezing weather... it was a great show. The orchestra sounded amazing and did some awesome numbers. I love music. There was one number that was sung beautifully by a young woman called "Flowers" and although I can appreciate that it was difficult to sing and she did an awesome job singing it, it was long and in weird keys and deep and dark lyrics. Not my cup of tea. We were sitting in the balcony on the side. So we could see all the people below us in the audience.... another thing I found amusing was watching this older man conducting the orchestra along with the conductor from his seat... he got REALLY into it at some parts. Anyway... it is always nice to get out, dress up and go see a performance and appreciate the arts and I am so glad that Brent enjoys it also.
